Chenin Blanc (Steen) 2020 Donkiesbaai

£24.25 per bottle

About this wine

The 2020 Donkiesbaai Chenin Blanc (Steen) has delicate floral aromas of honeysuckle which develop into typical fruity notes of lemon, lime, and white peach. As the wine opens up, more complex aromas emerge, showing layered notes of peach cobbler, pancake spice and quince. Subtle zesty acidity balances a medium-bodied wine, with a creamy mouth-feel and complexity that follows from the nose. A serious wine with a lingering finish of orange zest.

Add to this list Stellenbosch in South Africa and the picture is complete. A waxy, citrus and cream styled white variety with stunning acidity and natural balance, it can produce deeply-flavoured wines from dry through to botrytis-affected sweet styles. It is a natural in every sense and in the hands of the greatest growers in South Africa shows the shimmering potential of the Rainbow Nation on the world stage."
